Xbox One Can’t Be Stood Vertically
Perhaps that headline is a little misleading; you can stand the Xbox One vertically if you want, it’s just that if you do so, it might break.
“We don’t support vertical orientation; do it at your own risk,” Albert Panello, Xbox senior director of product management and planning told Gamespot.
“It wouldn’t be a cooling problem,” Panello continued, “we just didn’t design the drive for vertical. Because it’s a slot loading drive, we just didn’t design it for both”.
So there you have it. It’s really not a good idea to stand your Xbox One vertically. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We just hope this doesn’t cause any space issues for any of you potential Xbox One owners out there.
